Margaux Moment of the Month: Sailor's Serenade Breaks Maiden for Owner Bill Bowman

Friday, February 26, 2016 

When three-year-old filly, Sailor’s Serenade, broke her maiden second time out at Golden Gate Fields on Jan. 29, owner Bill Bowman could not have been more pleased to watch his Mizzen Mast homebred edge a three length victory over her competitor’s. 

“Sailor's Serenade broke her maiden at Golden Gate sprinting,” said managing partner, Bill Bowman. “We will run her back in one more sprint on March 6th at Golden Gate Fields in the first level allowance, and hopefully get to stretch her out after that one.” 

Bowman, who also raced the dam of Sailor’s Serenade, Star Serenade, has produced a total of three winners from three starters. Out of the Storm Cat stallion, Catrail, Star Serenade is currently in foal to Coolmore’s Magician.  

“Star Serenade is in foal to Magician and due March 18th. I will breed back to Magician for 2016. I believe it is a mating that could be magical,” stated Bowman. “Alan Porter, the best genetic person in the U.S. also loves the mating, and he too said it is worth repeating.”

A graduate of Margaux Farm’s starting and training program, Bowman says he selected the farm to board and train his stock because of the facility and management.  

 “I wanted to have Star Serenade and her offspring grow up on the same grounds from birth to training, and handled by the same professionals during all phases of their lives with utmost confidence. I wanted consistency with dam and her newborns all the way from birth, to when they are broken and readied for the track. The new Margaux Farm keeps me dreaming of the future because of their dedication to perfection.”
